Jim Berrisford, the Recruitment and Employment Confederation's regional director for Northern Ireland and director of his own agency, said that new technology is detracting slightly from what the industry is all about.
"Although we now have a range of technology which is making recruitment simpler, we must not forget the fundamentals of ethical and professional recruitment. We must embrace this technology, without losing sight of who we are," he advised.
Mr Berrisford added that recruitment agencies need to build on this while, at the same time, adapting to the ever-changing economic, political and technological climate both in the UK and around the world.
It comes after research carried out by Right Management showed that 36 per cent of people have used the services of a sales recruitment agency in order to get a job so far this year, which makes it more popular than any other method of recruitment and maintains the increasing popularity of this approach seen over the last two years.
